  2. I brought this up with a few lackeys at the block party I think it would be usefull as well as much needed if you could make it so on the app a person could submit new caches to be published or even activate a new trackable at this point if you want to do this you need to open safari and go through the site that way I nelieve it would be much more useful as well as very welcome if this could be done from the app thank you and I really hope this is something others agree on and can be placed in an upcoming version of the app very soon

  3. when I go caching I take along my kenwood d72a in the bottle holder on my backpack sice it has a camelback the bottle holder is unused other than as a radio holder my geobike and backpack are trackable as am I so when encountered I am trackable three different ways the APRS is always active and the gps logger is always running when im not in class

  12. hello i am looking for old broken magellan explorists any model as long as they dont work and also accesories i am wantigng parts so i can repair a few i have around here and accerories are always a nice thing to have as well any help you can give would be greatly appreciated

  13. My magellan color that I got for Christmas broke and magellan sent me a new Explorist 500 LE as a replacement unit. I thought that was extrodinary customer server BTW since it wasn't their fault it was broken and I made that clear to them. Now that I have the 500 I can't use it with my laptop. I need to be able to load the driver for it in NMEA mode for Microsooft Mappoint. When I attempt to load the driver in teh device manager, I point to the drivers directory on the cd, windows reports it found a driver and begins loading it then fails with the error "can not find the file specified" I called magellan and they said there is not a Vista compatible driver available but I thought I had read in the forums here that others have this working. if anyone has been able to get a driver to work for the Explorist 500 under Windows Vista please tell me how you did it. Mappoint is the main reason I got a GPS and I can not use it now.


    I checked on Magellan's website and was told to call 1-800-707-9971 to get more info on the status of their Vista updates. I can tell you that I just talked to them and apparently they will have the Vista drivers on their website within the month. They've been working on it for the past 6-7 months but I guess they are confident in the one month timeframe. If you call that 1-800 number they will add you to the email list to advise you when the udpates are available and even call you to help you get them installed. Good luck!


    I have made available from my website a modified driver for the Magellan eXplorist 600 to run under Windows Vista. This is the link to the existing forum on the driver and the direct link to the driver. I don't know if it will work with the 500, but I can't see any reason not to give it a try. The driver for the 600 has been widely downloaded and from all accounts, working seemlessly. If the driver does work for the 500, could you let me know, so that I can update my forum for other 500 users. Hope this helps.






    VISTA VISTA VISTA.....are there any WINDOWS XP Drivers..????????


    Buy A GARMIN, Magellan is a descent GPS, but that is it, everything else, website, support, software ABSOLUTELY SUCKS.......

    i use the magellan explorist 500 with both xp and vista and it works fine
